Activities at Field House
The Activities Coordinators here at Field House are always keen to learn about residents' interests and hobbies, tailoring meaningful activities to the likes and dislikes of those we support. Our mission is to ignite the past, appeal to current interests and embrace new ones, improving quality of life whilst stimulating the mind and senses. Activities are carried out via small groups or individually, supported by local volunteers. We have access to a range of local community facilities and nearby places of interest, prompting community engagement, and hold special events at the home, where we are entertained by guest vocalists and performers, with 'The Quiz Master' being a fan favourite.

Our Heroes Applaud
Staff and residents were so pleased to see the efforts of our team supported by the local fire service and police team during the COVID-19 pandemic. Staff were greeted to a round of applause unexpectedly at the home at 8pm on on 7th May by local emergency service teams, which was very emotional for all involved. This was a spontaneous attendance and well received by the team who were elated at the attendance and recognition of the emergency services team, who they consider to be our everyday heroes.
We recently made an appeal for some bunting or material to help us create some decorations to brighten up areas of the home and grounds. Our appeal has reached far and wide and has been discussed on local radio, resulting in a beautiful hand-knitted length of bunting received through the post from a lady called Anette, who is not local, but thanked all of our staff in each department (the lady is not known to us and not from the local area!).
It’s uplifting for the residents to know that people in the community are thinking of them, and the same for our amazing team of dedicated staff. The photograph is one of our residents, John, and one of our amazing carers, Tesni.
Postcards of Kindness
Residents received some cards, pictures and postcards from kind members of our local community to help keep everyone's spirits up during this current crisis.
Residents and relatives joined in for a relaxing pamper sessions to cast away the winter blues.
Nothing beats a bit of healthy competition with residents and relatives joining in with a good game of dominoes.
Staff, residents and local children had a 'spooktacular' day celebrating Halloween. There was fancy dress and pumpkin carving aplenty!
